Some Red Flags
Another thing is the community was told that the liaison committee would be made up of people who are both for and against this. We were told that both sides would be represented. I know from applying that each applicant had to state if they were for it or against it in their application letter. Was anyone selected that stated they were not for this? Are both sides evenly represented? It doesn’t seem to be and that’s a BIG RED FLAG for me. I would have liked to see a Councillor for and against, but instead the two most zealous men on Town Council sit on the committee.
Not much info is being released about the committee’s activities. To know anything we’re told to attend meetings and no questions are answered unless we send in specific questions. I asked the other day what the worse case scenario is. That’s a question that I would have expected the committee to have already asked and the truthful answer made public. I would have expected our Town Council to have asked that question before they even chose to explore this option.
The website is there but it’s a skeleton IMO. It doesn’t give me much information about the committee’s activities. If I have to attend meetings to obtain information, I’ll go without. I thought the liaison committee was appointed to find stuff out and release the info into the community. I’ve sent an email to the office asking what questions the committee has forwarded to NWMO so far. I await that reply. Surely the committee has asked a lot of questions in the last year and yet our computer screens are not flooded with answers.
Some would like us to pull out now because they know the longer we stay in this process the longer NWMO has to sway people away from what they believe. We’re being promised the world and it’s going to get harder and harder to stay “no” to all of it.
